    Do your chickens get ticks venturing out? I think one of my chickens might possibly have one but not sure, need to look better tomorrow. Felt this bump thing and thought i saw something but could be wrong. I've occasionally felt them before but figured it was just the feathers being set weird especially becsuse I've looked before. Well anyway, idk if it is a tick or not but if it is i feel awful if its been a while and i didnt notice but i dont think it has been. They havent been free ranging as much though so idk.
